Graduate Student Fellowship Applications

The Program in Cognitive Science is seeking applications from Princeton Ph.D. students to become Graduate Student Fellows in Cognitive Science. To be eligible, students must have a clear plan for their dissertation projects, though they are not required to have completed generals. They must plan to be in residence at Princeton throughout AY 24‐25.

Students from any departments/programs are eligible to apply if their dissertation work is related to cognitive science.

Students with DCE status in AY 24‐25 are also eligible. Students may participate in the program for up to two years but are expected to play more substantial organizational roles in their second year.


To be considered, please send the following materials as a single PDF to the Program Manager, Anna Colasante ([email protected]) by June 20:


1) a cover letter, describing one's involvement with cognitive science and an example of the kind of cognitive science event you would be interested in organizing for AY 24-25

2) a 2‐3 page description of one's dissertation project, with particular emphasis on how it relates to cognitive science; explicitly list all collaborators and advisers

3) a CV


Successful applicants will be expected to participate in the Cognitive Science Program next year by attending Thursday lunch colloquia and meetings, presenting in the Thursday lunch colloquium series in the fall semester, and jointly organizing a small number of events, such as a panel discussion for the benefit of undergraduate students interested in cognitive science. 

Fellows will receive $1000.
